For example, I am cooking a butt on my Chargriller Kamado today at 275*F. I have both the bottom and top vents cracked about 1/16" and am purring along nicely.
Thank you for your feedback
That is my normal setup w.r.t top/bottom vent opening and works. well. I was just wondering if that might not be optimal
